Slimy Slime


Playing with Slime can be very messy 😏😥although, it is a lot more fun as well as important for motor development.

Playing with Slime also helps children regulate their emotions and it is one of the best calming activities. Children can stretch and swirl and knead their slime for hours.

Research shows that sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain’s pathways, which lead to the child’s ability to complete more complex learning tasks. Sensory play supports language development, cognitive growth, fine and gross motor skills, problem solving skills, and social interaction.

Uses and builds fine motor skills by exploring pinching, popping, poking, pouring movements, as well as problem solving skills, and social interaction. Helps children learn important sensory attributes, like sticky, hard, crunchy, wet, etc.
